New to DVC and wondering about additional points (rent/transfer)

So we are newly minted owners of 200 its at Aulani. Like a lot of time share buys, it was more or less an impulse. Lots of fear, but reading these forums have been a HUGE help with getting comfortable with the whole idea. My fear has been ebbing and my excitement has been growing. but now the questions keeping popping up in mind and thought I would ask.

When we bought I wasn't comfortable with going any higher than the amount for 200 pts. for Aulani, and while it is a sizable chunk of change I am already seeing the limits of a smaller amount. However, after reading so many posts about resale, I am comfortable with keeping it smaller and should the need arise in adding a contract of another 100-200 points most likely thru resale.

That leads me to my question of adding another contract to our portfolio. I have searched these forums and seems like I haven't found the answer or am just not putting the pieces together properly. There seems to be a lot of people with more than one contract so I'm sure they know something I don't. My question is, if you buy a contract from another home resort, can you "move" points to another contract (essentially a transfer) even though you own both contracts, and if you do, do they become like your own original points and can be used for reservations 11 months out, or are they restricted and only able to be used on reservations 7 months out because it might not be at your home resort? Or do you need to have all the points come from contracts from the same home resort in order to book 11 months out.

The answer would greatly influence "where" we would buy our next contract. We might also be interested in getting a smaller WDW property contract to use for the parks and then "rob" from our Aulani account if we were short for our full vacation. Our Aulani contract is fairly expensive in comparison to most others (in terms of $/pt and MX fees), but if we could augment with a cheaper contract from an older resort that would make a lot more financial sense, but I'm sure DVC might not like that. Aulani was without a doubt where DW wanted to buy so I don't think we made a mistake in that regard ,but also doing WDW every few years would be a good idea as well.

There has to be a reason so many people have so many contracts at different places, I just want to try to make sure I fully understand the pros and cons.

I hope I am making my question clear . If not, let me know and I will try again and maybe break it down a bit more or give a hypothetical situation that would make it clearer than all of this theory .
